    The Pro Frame Thin DarkUST is Elite ProAV’s EDGE FREE® ultra-short throw fixed frame screen. It uses our innovative ceiling/ambient light rejecting DarkUST material which absorbs up to 95% of overhead light.

    The DarkUST material has a serriform optical surface structure made specifically to negate the washout effect caused by overhead and other off-axis light sources. This technology allows the material to retain image brightness, color saturation and contrast for superior picture performance. The EDGE FREE® design permits the DarkUST material to wraparound the inside of the frame to maximize the viewing area in a smaller footprint. The material is designed for use with ultra-short throw table-top configurations without worrying about shadowing the picture when giving a presentation in front of the screen. The Pro Frame Thin DarkUST compliments any boardroom, training facilities decor.

    I purchased a 120" Elite ALR screen. It showed up within a few days of ordering, and my son and I had it assembled and installed in a few hours. I was concerned during assembly because the frame wasn't lining up quite right on the screen, even after stretching the screen material. The 1/4" black bezel covered the imperfection, however, and left us with a fantastic screen for our projector. I've been using a projector as my primary TV for about 10 years, projecting straight to a painted wall. The difference between a painted wall and this projector screen was astounding and immediate, even with our old overhead projector. The colors are more vibrant, the brights brighter, and the darks darker. We switched to the Formovie Theater UST projector shortly after installing the screen, and I cannot express how amazing the combined improvement is!

    I tried other screens for my LG HU85LA, including Elite Screen's own CLR screen. This DarkStar UST brought it to the next level. There is so much more clarity when compared with other screens I've tried. I wish I could give it 10 stars!
    Imagine being mindblown!

    I paired this screen with a Samsung LSP9T. My wife and I were somewhat happy with the projector right there on the bare wall. So you can imagine my wife's immediate eye roll when I told her what I spent on this screen. The best synopsis of a review I can give is that once this screen was on the wall and put into action my wife's eyeroll sneer transformed into a wide-eyed grin! Best purchase I've made so far this year. We are now hosting the neighborhood superbowl party!

    A good screen but not worth the extra money

    Overall I am really happy with the image on this screen with my P2 projector, but I don’t think it worth all of the extra money over the Grandview screen. Sure this comes with an LED light kit, but you can get one for like $20 and add it to the Grandview and save close to $1,000. Image wise they look the same to me but the Elite was easier to setup. I wish I just bought a 2nd Grandview instead of the Elite DarkUST.

    The screen is built extremely well - especially seeing I had to take it off the wall numerous times to try and figure out the worthless light kit. I had a cheaper Elite screen and there is a major step up in quality when going with their pro model. I can't compare this with the Grandview (the other close option), but the screen material is excellent. I have this paired with the Epson UST and I have a very good viewing experience with a TON of ambient light. Light coming from the side is still an issue (way too many windows in my space), but it's amazing at blocking overhead lights - we leave our skylights open 100% of the time now! FYI - when viewing the screen from the floor, it looks light gray - when viewing from above, it looks black.

    I decided on the elite screen as it was supposed to be easier to put together and have a channel for a light kit. The second part (direct quote from customer service) was extremely misleading. Turns out the light kit is for Elite's Aeon series screens, not the Darkstar. For light kits to work with screens, the LED strip needs to be perpendicular to the wall or at least shine outwards on the wall - similar to how Screen Innovations does it. After WEEKS of going back and forth with customer service and having to prove that placing the LED strip *anywhere* on the back of the screen will not produce ambient light, I am told that Elite wants me to attach the $10 strip of LEDs to the outside of the frame. Obviously, this is a joke, as it's a $2700 screen and I won't tape a tacky LED strip on the outside of it. In the end, I made my own .5" frame out of wood and then mounted the screen to that frame. I was very disappointed that customer service did not offer any compensation for the weeks of back and forth trying to figure this out, the additional expense, or the misleading advertising. They should say the screen comes with a light kit, but won't work unless you tack it to the outside of the frame. Hopefully, this either saves someone a similar headache of figuring it out or an idea for how to make a subframe work!

    Nice quality construction and everything fits together nicely. Worth the price. Results are amazing. The instructions are inconsistent between what’s comes with the product and what is available on-line.

    Example, Sequence of when to install center support, no mention of black springs use. (I figured it out after putting on wall the obvious sag of bottom outer trim piece.

    Special thanks to David Solomon for recommending this screen!
